Completely endorse that sentiment, High Flow. But I'm going to stick around for a while - bullshit detector at the ready and cold water bucket ready to be applied... Stay with it if you can.

removal may be cowardly, others have different reasons, not meaning to offend, yet being misunderstood, thus removing them. A few months ago there was an email campaign to have me join some to stonewall a poster here and i refused. Don't like a poster? Don't read 'em! Or have a snit and run away.
My idea of a funeral is sharing great memories and a celebration of a continued life in a better place, then a standing ovation.(A good Irish Wake comes to mind). Respect my "take" on life and "death". If that makes me a cosmicdickhead, so be it. Those who care have my email addy also.

Hey Cosmic - Cowardly is a strong word, I know. I just feel that each of us KNOWS that these posts are for public consumption. So, each of us must keep that in mind while posting here.

Removing posts is like putting your foot in your mouth. However, in real-life, when we put foot-in-mouth, generally we end up red-faced, and based on that feeling of embarassment, we refrain from making such comments again.

Here, instead of being humble and choosing words carefully, some shit all over the page, then, after the haze of intoxicants has lifted, come-in and delete their rambling rants.

In the mean time, others are reading this stuff and getting their dander-up over something even the poster doesn't believe in! Otherwise there would be no call for deletion. Right?

Hey Charlie, I don't disrespect what you say or what you believe. But I do agree with HighFlow that removing posts is wrong - it's a kind of censorship even if self-imposed, and it doesn't help to further the discussion. If someone says they think you were wrong about something, there are basically two things you can do, agree with them or tell them to shove it and give reasons why.

Agree with you about the Irish wake - three days of singing and carousing and making one hell of a racket just to make sure that the dear departed really has departed. That's the way to do it!

I removed (only one post...) to make a point about several post removals I noticed, thus "snit removal"
